Snow Mountain Ranch is a YMCA of the Rockies family resort located in Grand County, Colorado. The property spans 5,100 acres and offers families affordable, activity-packed vacations. In addition to three large lodges, Snow Mountain Ranch offers multi-room vacation homes, a yurt village, multiple dining facilities, an indoor swimming pool, a library, an arts and crafts center, a full-service Nordic center and cross-country ski trails, a prayer labyrinth, indoor and outdoor chapels, and more. An on-site Chaplain is available for additional services including baptisms, memorials, and weddings.

As the first rays of sunshine inch over the snow-capped peaks surrounding SolVista Basin, and the kids are placing bets on who will make it down Buckhorn first, you know this is going to be a great day. SolVista Basin at Granby Ranch is a place where your family can slow down a little, have fun and really connect. The terrain is gentle and perfect for learning to ski or board. At SolVista Basin, you can keep the family together or let the kids explore on their own—without worrying about anyone getting lost. The Base Camp Lodge is centrally located between the East-West slopes of the ski basin, and all trails lead back to the base.

Set in the alpine wilderness 20 miles southwest of Rocky Mountain National Park, Granby Ranch is a four-season community where you can golf at a championship golf course in the morning, mountain bike in the afternoon and hike hundreds of acres of woodlands after supper. Do something amazing for your family.
